Tad & Fry
A Tale of FRiendship and metamorphosis
A tadpole and a salmon fry can become friends, but what happens when they grow up?
Tad and Fry are best friends, but as they go through metamorphosis, their friendship is put to the test. What will happen when Tad grows legs or Fry is ready to leave the estuary and migrate to the ocean?
A unique puppet show about friendship and empathy, this original tale brings biology and the science of metamorphosis to life. Performed by a live singing and interactive puppeteer, this charming puppet performance utilizes shadow puppetry, audience participation, music and various styles of puppets.
